ISLAMABAD - Rain saved ZTBL blushes as only seven overs match was possible on the third day of the President's Trophy Grade-I (2013-2014) ninth round match at Diamond Ground on Wednesday. ZTBL resumed their second inning at the overnight score of 33-1 in 15 overs. After adding another 17 runs, they lost another wicket in 21 overs when bad light and slight drizzle forced umpires to call off the match. ZTBL had reached 50-2 in 21 overs at the close of the play. At that time, ZTBL were struggling to avoid innings defeat against NBP requiring another 67 runs. NBP scored 325 runs in their first innings, thus gained a healthy first innings lead of 117 runs. ZTBL would hope rain to continue to avoid certain defeat on the fourth and last day of the match today (Thursday).––Staff Reporter
